This is one of the most exciting times of the year and for good reason. Family, friends, catching up with old aquaintences, eating great food — I am fortunate to have all of that this holiday season, and another big part of this time of year for my family is football. The Patriots are always right there with my family in December and January, and my biggest wish is to see them finish the year strong and make a deep playoff run. Go Pats! — Alex Sponseller
